    Major Storm to Hit the Northeast

    Wednesday 10 a.m.

    This video goes through the forecast from today into the weekend. Into this afternoon, one critical area is the I95 corridor from Philadelphia to New York City. During the early hours of the storm, snow and sleet predominate, causing slippery conditions. Later, we get the change to wind-driven heavy rain. From the middle of Pennsylvania into central and western New York then to central and northern New England, many places can get a foot of snow. From Philadelphia to Boston, street flooding will be a problem with some spots getting more than 2 inches of rain.

    This temperature map from 10 a.m. shows a wide range in temperatures (almost a 40-degree difference from central New York to northeast North Carolina) and accounts for the variation in precipitation types with this storm.
